ESEM Productions is a full service still photography production company based in Salt Lake City, Utah. From casting to location scouting to all aspects of production, ESEM has over a decade of experience to suit each unique project.


Samantha started ESEM Productions after moving from Brooklyn to Salt Lake City in 2012. During her 10 years in New York City, she art directed and produced shoots all over the US and worldwide (Austin, Miami, New York, Los Angeles, Seattle, Buenos Aires, Ireland, Vancouver, Shanghai).


While she still misses pizza by the slice and sunsets at Rockaway Beach, she has fallen in love with her new home and the amazing locations and top notch production resources here.


When Samantha is not hard at work balancing budgets or scouting locations, you can find her rock climbing in the Wasatch, skiing in LIttle Cottonwood Canyon, or mountain biking on the trails of Park City.
